Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Just a quick post as this photograph has been so popular on a Facebook Group I belong to: Beachcombing (British Coastline). I am always looking for interesting finds as I walk along the shore and a couple of frosty morning ago, I spotted this shell and saw a lovely landscape.  One of the great things about becoming an artist (whether a photographer, a textile artist, a painter, a ceramicist … it does not matter what) is that you gain “an eye” – you see so much more in everyday items.  These days where Mindfulness is big news, I think that simply taking in what is around you is a good way into “being in the moment.”
